Tips for Managing and Growing Your Fitness Business
Apr 5, 2020

Reading time 2 min.

Starting a fitness business is an excellent way to share your love of health and exercise with others. Whether you’re a personal trainer whose office is a spare room in your home or you run a small gym, how you do things matters. Here are 6 tips that can help you manage and grow your fitness business.

Develop a System

One of the first things you need to do to successfully manage your fitness business is to develop an operational system. Take the time to map out a system for every part of your business. How will you manage messages from potential (or existing) clients? What sort of supplies will you provide? What will you do when you run low on supplies? Having a well-planned strategy in place helps you to avoid serious unnecessary headaches.

Focus on Your Clients First

No matter what type of fitness business you run, you need to put your clients first. Your clients will notice when you put their health and happiness before your business and it will truly make a world of difference.

One of the biggest ways that putting your clients first helps your business grow is that your clients will talk to their friends, family, and co-workers. Word of mouth is incredibly powerful. Others hear first-hand accounts of positive experiences and are more likely to come to you for their fitness needs as well.

Optimize Your Website

When looking for just about anything, most people start their search online. Websites are a vital part of any business. An optimized website allows your target market to find you more easily. Incorporate keywords throughout your landing pages and content.

If you operate locally, incorporate local keywords for those performing “near me” searches and don’t forget to claim your Google My Business listing. Likewise, if you offer fitness services online, be sure to include keywords that will help those looking for online fitness advice.

Provide Educational Content

Content is an important component of your website. Not just any content will do, though. You need to provide your website visitors with useful, educational content that provides them with relevant information. This can be in the form of written blogs, video content, infographics, and more.

In addition to providing educational content to your clients, it’s a good idea to consider continuing your education as well. Taking online business courses like the ones offered for a USC online MBA can help you to improve your business knowledge and take the appropriate steps to run and grow your business successfully.

Post on Social Media

Businesses don’t just have websites anymore. They also have social media accounts. Social media provides you with a unique way to connect with your clients and your target audience. You have the opportunity to share information about your business, provide valuable information, and make connections.

Be active on your social media accounts. Post regularly. Don’t just advertise though. Provide updates, share relevant articles, and encourage engagement with questions or polls. Use the appropriate hashtags so you can be found in social media searches. When your followers ask questions, take the time to answer.

Share Success Stories

Another effective way to help grow your business is to share testimonials and transformations. This helps to show your credibility. Transformations are visual proof of the effectiveness of your business. Post testimonials and transformation photos to your website and your social media accounts. If you’re posting photos, be sure to ask your clients for permission first.

Your fitness business allows you the opportunity to help others reach their health and wellbeing goals. Proper management, effective marketing, and service that goes above and beyond can help your business grow and succeed.

Wellness Coaching
$20 USD
50 & Beyond Health & Wellbeing Discovery Session

Join me for a comprehensive look into what it will take to stay physically and mentally strong as you move through the second half of your life.

We all want to age without the fear of suffering from a chronic illness and still have the energy and strength to live the life we want.

The number one reason people fail to stay healthy as they age is the inability to consistently follow the right habits and behaviours for health transformation.

Through working with 1000's of clients over the last 20 years, I have been able to develop a coaching program that not only looks at nutrition, exercise, sleep and stress management but also how to develop the right mindset needed to succeed.

Having a plan is not as important as having the ability to implement it.

If you are someone who struggles to follow healthy habits consistently. Or you are someone who wants to learn more about what they need to do personally to avoid chronic illness. Then my 30-minute Discovery Session is ideal for you.

From the 30 minutes we spend together, we will go through in specific detail what it is you can do today when it comes to what to eat, how to get the most from exercise, how to develop a powerful sleep routine and how to build a healthy environment needed to live a healthy life.

And with over 20 years of coaching experience in the health & wellness industry, I have witnessed firsthand what it takes to consistently follow the right habits and behaviours for lasting change.

Expect to hear things that will challenge what you have always been told about nutrition, exercise, sleep and stress management. As someone who is over 50 and is stronger, fitter and healthier than I was in my 20s, 30s, & 40s, I am well-placed to know what works and doesn't as we move through this period of our lives.

Check Your Vibes! Find out how much Positive and Negative energy you have!

The Energy Leadership™ Index (ELI) assessment is the proprietary, research-backed assessment tool, created by iPEC, that takes something abstract, like the way a person views the world, and turns it into something tangible—a metric that you can see and feel and even reevaluate in the future.

You’ve probably taken personality tests, like Myers Briggs, DiSC, and Enneagram, but this is different. And transformational.

The ELI is an attitudinal assessment tool that captures how an individual currently perceives and approaches work and life. This means that you learn to make change happen in real-time when you encounter a moment of self-doubt, fear, or frustration.

With the awareness and insights gained through the Energy Leadership Index debrief, you have the opportunity to reshape your attitudes and worldview and transform your life into the one you envision.

Our worldview is the result of a combination of many different aspects: our past experiences, level of consciousness, perception of situations. Each of us has a unique combination of all seven levels of energy which, in turn, creates your typical viewpoints, perceptions, and beliefs about life.

Learning about your energetic makeup can help you to reframe your perspective, shift your consciousness, and increase your energy level as a result. Discover your unique energetic makeup by taking an ELI Assessment!

This comes with an hour debrief - As an FYI the price is what it is because there is a price to me- I have to pay the institution for the assessment and the scoring. Then I'll walk you thorugh your results.

Oxygen to the rescue! Great for Mental Health, Brain Injury, Detox, inflammation

Hyperbaric Oxygen Chambers are one of the oldest and safest treatments available. Oxygen detoxifies and heals. I was introduced to Hyperbaric Oxygen Chambers (HBOC) by Dr. Amen, a world reknown Psychiatrist. Oxygen is great for ADD, Mood Disorders, Trauma, Insomnia, Brain injuries, Wound healing and Inflammation.

This is from Dr. Amen's Clinic: "If you are struggling with a mental health condition, recovering from a concussion or traumatic brain injury (TBI), or dealing with cognitive or memory problems, hyperbaric oxygen therapy may be for you. People all over the world have reported recovering from a variety of conditions and experiencing dramatic improvements with this type of popular therapy."

Most people will feel a difference off of one treatment, especially if you typically have trouble sleeping. You will sleep like a rock.
